The campaign is a 40-day time frame in which people in local communities pledge to pray and fast for an end to abortion. They also commit to a 40-day prayer vigil outside an abortion center or Planned Parenthood facility (Planned Parenthood does not perform abortions at all of its locations, but it refers women to its abortion centers and is the largest abortion business in the United States). In many cases, those vigils are conducted 24 hours a day. Additionally, some form of community outreach accompanies the vigils.
The Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux fortunately does not have an abortion facility within our diocese, however, there are several in Lousiana. Your church parish can pledge to pray and fast for an end to abortion. Visit the following websites to find out how you can make a difference in Louisiana.
